I strongly believe that cartoons have been evolving over time and have been getting better and better quality and have been created into movies,anime,kid shows etc.
For example, the Simpsons have been on TV since 1987 and the more times past the show gets better quality and evolves, they earned over 750 million dollars through time.
Fantasmagorie was the first ever made cartoon in 1908, first ever cartoon to ever have sound was Disney’s steamboat Willie in 1928 these cartoons were famous because they were created for kids and others.
From this we can conclude that cartoons have been here since the 1900s and that they were created for kids and others. They also were different quality through time and changes.
